The importance of user-centered design in healthcare is truly life or death. Whether it's new medical devices or technologies; drug research, approval or delivery; patient forms or medical record sharing; emergency disaster planning or increasing the functionality of hospitals and everyday healthcare delivery, everyone is affected in some way by the intersection of usability in healthcare.
We believe that focusing World Usability Day 2013 on healthcare will create a stronger awareness of these issues and lead to initiative that have long term impact on the quality of everyone's life.

- Jeff Greer, Content Strategist at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan, who will speak on Connecting the Dots Using Content Strategy: Making Health Insurance Easy
- Steve Tengler, User Experience Director at Altia, Inc., will speak on How To Infuse Your Medical User Interface With Pure Sweetness.
